Get Online Now During the Coronavirus Era
If you do not have a website to validate your online presence, now is the time to do it. With the current social distancing restrictions in place, everyone is living in a virtual reality, trying to stay connected as best as we can. A website can be your hub to engage with old and new clients.
You may have had a site up that has been more of a business card or splash page. Now that your retail storefront is temporarily closed, it’s important to be able to continue sales. Creating an online store, is a great solution. Visitors can purchase items to be shipped to their home or picked-up locally at a curbside exchange. We have created online storefronts for Boutiques like Viva La Silk and niche markets like Sierra Gale Seafoods.
We understand that there is an urgency to get a website or ordering platform online, and so we are set-up for a quick turn-around delivery. We can work together to launch an elegant, powerful site within a week and then build on it over time.
How can a website can grow your business?
Your website should sell for you. If you are in professional services, it should clearly communicate the problem you solve for clients and make it easy for them to schedule a consultation and start doing business together.
If you sell products, your online storefront should make it easy and enjoyable for someone to buy from you.
A website represents your brand – through words and images and offers a way for strangers to contact you. It’s the best way to be found and share the most important things about how you do business.
It is your content hub for new articles, videos or podcasts. It showcases your portfolio and links to all other social media platforms. With a solid SEO foundation and consistency in creating new content, you should be found.
There are so many opportunities for engagement and growth through your website.
How We Work
We love helping companies build or refresh their website. We recommend a website refresh every 3 years as technology and likely your own vision and messaging change. In this era, the Home Page and service offering almost need to be refreshed each couple weeks!
This is what you can expect when we work together:
- We offer a free consultation to hear about your business and listen to your goals.
- We share a little bit about our experience and answer any questions before sending a quote and then invoice.
- After we receive payment, we start the engagement with a kick-off meeting, gathering data about your business, your team, your services, your branding and design goals.
- We set realistic milestones for delivery.
- We ask if you have other sites that you’d like to model and request or define requirements for images and graphics.
- We send you a simple questionnaire that begins to collect language and content for your website pages. We work through a framework to clarify the problem you solve and how you solve it for customers/clients.
- We clarify your sales funnel and design your website in a way to attract new prospects and sell for you.
- We collaborate with you throughout the process and then deliver a draft website which you can approve and offer feedback before we deliver the final site and “go live.”
The process is honestly a great deal of fun. We find that it helps you look at your business from a big picture view and articulate who you are and what you offer. We help you tell your story in a very simple way that allows visitors to immediately understand why they should do business with you.
Services and Pricing
Our prices for websites are extremely reasonable, as we see them as the start of a long-term relationship. Websites are meant to be “living” and “active;” therefore, we also help with publishing new content and sending out human and relevant newsletters to your contacts.
We build all our sites on WordPress.com as the platform has built-in SEO and removes all the IT headaches.
We offer two options:
Simple Website $1175
This includes a theme customization with important pages like:
You supply logos, images, and any other graphics.
Custom Website $3K+
This includes a fully customized website design of your choice, being able to dictate layout, fonts, and all colors. You have greater control over all elements.
All pages in Simple Website included.
We will integrate site with any other Social Media Platforms. We will set you up on Google My Business and Yelp (if needed).
You supply logos, images, and any other graphics. It is necessary to purchase the business plan with WordPress.com for this service.
Because we see the website as a catalyst and hub for all your other platforms, we have people on our team that can help with the following for additional fees.
Graphic Design – From logos, branding elements, print collateral and other graphic elements, our graphic design partner will make sure to capture your vision in your design.
Video Creation – Video is becoming extremely popular, especially once everyone began working remotely. We have a team member that can help you set up your YouTube Channel correctly and position it for growth. We can also help with editing and publishing regular videos.
Sales Funnels – Do you have something valuable to offer prospects to start a relationship with you? You should have sales funnels created for every key product or service you offer. We help you create the messaging, the PDF, and email sequencing to nurture a prospect with great value until they are ready to do business with you.
Online Shopping Cart – Some companies just have a couple products they’d like to sell online but are not necessarily the core of their business. We can add a Shopping Cart integration that allows you to take orders directly from your site.
Online Chat – We can add a plugin that allows new visitors to chat with you to ask questions and connect with you on the spot.
